The Vidam Park (literally, Amusement Park) of Budapest is one of the oldest fun parks in Europe, and it still manages to keep a historical atmosphere, but not at the expense of the quality of the leisure opportunities it makes available. The park opened its gates somewhere in the early 19th century, but back then it was called Vurstli (in translation, funfair). A major extension is documented for the beginning of the 20th century, when the original Vurstli merged with an English park previously built in the close vicinity of Vurstli.
One of the highlights of the Vidam Park refers to a wooden roller-coaster, one of the oldest in the entire Europe. A big wheel and a carousel also remind of the past ages of Budapest. At present, the Vidam Park is both an exceptional fun opportunity and an occasion to get an insight into how people used to understand leisure two centuries ago.
It is located in the so-called City Park (Varosliget) of Budapest.
